Pros: Looks nice I guess, does actually charge
Cons: slow charging
Other Thoughts: It doesn't appear to be Windows Phone friendly (635 or 640) in terms of fast charging. All I get is slow charging with a message on my phone that it could be charging more quickly with a different charger. I topped up my phone a few times and that was all the juice it had out of the box, despite showing the white light which suggests it was close to full.
I don't know. I'm debating how useful this actually is. Seems that investing in backup phone batteries would have been a better idea.
Pros: Modular, super cool, super quiet, looks nice
Cons: I would be lying if I did not find the reviews of DOA or units frying peoples' entire PCs a bit worrying.
EVGA is a solid company that I would hope would have our backs. I've done plenty of business with them in the past and always been happy, without testing their RMA process.
Other Thoughts: This replaced a nice Corsair PSU that was out of warranty. As this was a good deal at the time, I decided to jump. Happy I did. The Corsair was a Bronze and while quiet, it was a hotbox.
The EVGA couldn't be more different. My fan often doesn't even kick-on under load because the thing remains so cool. It's shocking to put my foot next to the steel case and not feel any heat in the middle of summer, where the PSU is.
I would be lying if I did not find the reviews of DOA or units frying peoples' entire PCs a bit worrying. I've owned Seasonic OEMs in the past and never had any issues. Looking at the overall quality of this product, right down to the packaging, it's hard to believe anyone is.
EVGA is also a solid company that I would hope would have our backs.
Pros: Gaming response times with IPS color depth and accuracy
Cons: only 60Hz and tends to be overpriced
Other Thoughts: Tom's Hardware has an excellent review of this monitor and what you can expect in terms of color. It's just shy of being on par with the best IPS monitors under $500. Photographers could absolutely use this for critical jobs. It's gorgeous.
Build quality is great and BenQ proprietary technology adds to what makes this a great monitor of gaming, specifically.
Unfortunately, this monitor tends to be overpriced. For a 60Hz, even with this color accuracy, it needs to be under $200 to make any sense purchasing. When it is, it's a steal if you don't consistently push over 60+ frames in games, or mostly play RTS, which this monitor is made for.
This is the monitor they feature at many gaming competitions in Asia where there is some big money to be made for the winners.
Has a 3-year warranty on everything but the panel itself which is an industry standard 1-year.
